Kitchen cabinets with glass doors are pretty tricky. You either love them or you hate them. It‘s easy to dismiss the option based on nothing but an association with a style that you don’t like but don‘t generalize the look. Glass kitchen cabinet doors are more versatile and adaptable than you think plus they also have a practical side. They‘re a pretty great compromise between solid cabinetry and open shelving, allowing you to organize everything neatly inside a unit and to have it put on display at the same time. There are, of course, lots of variations based on the type of glass you choose for your cabinets.
If you‘re looking for beautiful, durable countertops, Quartz might be a good choice. In fact, it is becoming the hot choice to add style to a kitchen. These countertops can look like natural stone but offer some benefits that stone cannot. That said, they do not have to resemble stone. Because the material is engineered, it‘s available in all sorts of colors that nature cannot provide. If you‘re shopping for countertops, you’ll want to consider not just the costs, but also the pros and cons of quartz countertops. Both quartz and quartzite are popular countertop materials that come from the same mineral: quartz. While both look the same, quartzite is a natural stone material and needs to be treated like other stone surfaces. What we are discussing here is engineered quartz. It‘s a bit of a misnomer to call engineered quartz countertops stone, because they really are not. The material is not cut from a quarry like natural countertop materials. Quartz is one of the most abundant minerals on earth that is a component of stone. If you’ve shopped for granite countertops, you will have noted mineral patterns in the stone, and one of those minerals is quartz. You might see some products touted as natural quartz. While the mineral is natural, don‘t think that the entire countertop is natural.
Granite can be expensive and is among the costlier of countertop materials, particularly because of installation. And, its great weight means you'll need very sturdy cabinet boxes to support the countertop, which can be a concern if you are remodeling. In some kitchens, a large amount of granite might require extra floor supports as well. What is mainly an advantage for some might also be a slight disadvantage. While a glass or cup can survive a collision with some countertop surfaces, that’s generally not the case with granite. Drop a glass or plate on granite and you can be sure that it will break. Like most stone, granite must be sealed every so often to avoid stains. How often you have to seal the counter depend on the type of sealer you use and the color of your granite. If you have a dark granite top, you might not need to seal as often because minor discoloration is not visible. RemPros also notes that alkaline- or acid-based cleaners should not be used for cleaning granite.
